Music professor re-elected to international board of directors
Dr. Grant Peters, professor of music at Missouri State University, was re-elected for a four-year term on the board of directors for the International Trumpet Guild (ITG). The International Trumpet Guild is a nonprofit organization founded to promote communication among trumpet players and improve the artistic level of performance, teaching and literature associated with trumpets.
During Peters’ first term on the board, he was named host of the ITG’s 2011 Carmine Caruso International Jazz Trumpet Solo Competition, held on Missouri State’s campus. The successful bid included a $50,000 grant from the Herb Alpert Foundation and brought five of the most outstanding young jazz trumpeters from around the world to Springfield to compete for a $10,000 first prize.
ITG has more than 5,000 members representing 56 countries and includes professional and amateur performers, teachers, students, manufacturers, publishers and other people interested in being a part of an organization dedicated to the trumpet profession.
